Below is a short list of one-off services from our introductory offering to get a taste of what we can do for you.

Wine Training

Wine Service Basics: Let one of our qualified sommeliers take your team through wine service techniques. Learn how to open, service select glassware, decant and present wines as well as deal with the common customer issues and complaints. $300.

Bespoke Training: Unlike wine suppliers, we can train your staff on your wine list, agnostic of who supplies the wine. We offer comprehensive training or themed trainings based on your needs. From $350 per class depending on the wines.


Wine List Health Check: Wondering if your wine programme could run better, or unsure if you are getting the best advice on wines which suit your establishment? We offer one-off consultations to provide clarity and direction. From $500 depending on the size of the list.

Ongoing Development
